The police towed her car away even as the YSRTP chief was seated in it. Many party workers were detained and others were stopped a kilometre away from the CM’s house.
According to an Indian Express report, on Tuesday morning, Sharmila arrived at Punjagutta along with YSRTP leaders and cadre, and tried to proceed towards Pragathi Bhavan in protest against the BRS workers’ attack on her convoy on Monday and the subsequent cancellation of permission for her padayatra.
High drama was witnessed as Sharmila was driving a vehicle from her convoy, the windshield and windows of which were smashed by activists of the Bharat Rashtra Samithi (BRS) – formerly the Telangana Rashtra Samithi – at Chennaraopet on Monday. The YSRTP chief was, however, stopped by the police at Somajiguda circle, the report said.
After a brief shuffle, Sharmila was detained and is currently detained in the SR Nagar police station.
